MILDOT? MLR? OR EMLR

I have been thinking which one to choose, the MILDOT reticle or the MLR reticle. Here is a pic. of both of them.



I really like the looks of the MILDOT and I can see the benefits of the MLR. To my eye the MLR seems much bussier for some reason.
I decided to play with my computer a bit and I put together what I think would be the one I would really like to have if I had the money and if it was possible. Here is the picture.



I named it EMLR meaning EagletMLR [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
This reticle would be way more accurate for ranging than any of the other two and would make it more accurate for shooting off of those tic marks. Each tic mark would be about 0.86 MOA.
What do you guys think?

    Picture sucks, but look for NF NP-R1. It's pretty close to what your EMLR is, only simplier maybe?

    sewwhat89,
    I was not able to find it. I did find the NP-R2 at the Nightforce website but not the NP-R1 or NF NP-R1.

    I added the EMLR2, maybe I like this one better, looks cleaner...???

    Take the R2, make it in 1 MOA tics and merge it with your EMLR sans the dots and you have the R1. I think it would be great for more precise ranging and easy math with 1 MOA tics; however, I still will go with the R2 for a cleaner look. I can do math by 2s in my head with ease so the 2 MOA is not a problem, quicker too! Shoot NF an email, and they should get back to you with the same diagram just much clearer. I don't know why it posted so small on here. I goofed somewhere, I just can't figure out where.

    col48,
    very interesting. Could you tell us a bit more. It seems very much like the MLR without the buttom post and with a capability of 53.3 MOA from center or scope. I could use something like that!
